In Your Life Story
To Love Oneself is the Beginning of a
Lifelong Romance ~Oscar Wilde
I am learning to know who I really am on this journey of self!
I feel that in expanding as a person I can believe, trust and love myself more, so much more! I want to become more of me as well as a better version of myself too. I love figuring out the mystery that is me and who I am! I feel that it matters when it comes to living the life I do have and want more of.
The hardest part is hearing let alone listening to myself and following my intuition and instincts! I am working on self doubting and second guessing myself. I am learning to come from a place of love with believing and trusting in myself. I want to have a positive mindset, follow my heart and really listen to myself and my needs from within. There is just something about being self confident and discovering my strong that makes me LOVE the life I do have!
Questions I Ask My Self
#1 “Would I like me if I did . . .?”
I truly want to make decisions and choices that I can live with and that come from my heart. I want to like me and love me for being myself! The only person I am letting down is me, myself and I when I do not stay true to myself.
#2 “Will . . . move me forward or not?”
Why not experience growth and expand your sense of self while learning and gaining life experiences! I need to tune in and be aware of myself and my needs. I want to develop a good relationship with myself by being true to who I am! This includes being true to my beliefs and my values as well as my preferences and my needs.
I really have to stop putting obstacles in my way, including myself! I want to be more open and be able to accept what life has to offer me. I want to be more passionate and engaged when it comes to living my life fully!
#3 “Am I being open-minded or close-minded on . . .?”
I prefer to be as open-minded as possible. However, sometimes I am biting my tongue or inserting my foot in my mouth! I really try to come from a positive place when I speak my mind or follow my heart. The best part is I have the freedome to make choices and decisions that benefit me and that are good for me!
My Sense of Strength
I am tapping into my inner strengths and discovering my strong! I feel it gives me a sense of balance and stability as well as a sense of security from the inside out. I know I cannot control everything in my life, but at least I can cope and deal with what is happening in my life. Otherwise I am going to just fall apart when things do not go as planned or do not go in my favor!
I have to let go of some of that control, especially when it comes from my ego! I end up limiting myself and not showing the real me. I want to make myself feel good and not always depend on other people to do that for me! I have to depend on myself and give myself strength and security. I need to listen to myself and take care of myself!
Believing in My Self
I believe personal change, personal growth and personal transformation can be a GOOD thing! I amaze and surprise myself at times in what I truly can do, especially when I believe and trust in myself. It certainly is not easy at times, but it is so worth it though. I want to put the best me out there every day!
